UPDATE: Parliament has now risen for its Easter ‘recess’ – one of several scheduled breaks during the year. However, your message can still reach your MP and help secure their support for a fair deal for animals when the Agriculture Bill reaches its final stages in Parliament.
This spring, UK MPs are expected to debate the final stages of the Agriculture Bill. This could be the first step towards protecting farm animals in new trade deals. Please will you email your MP today?
A POSITIVE STEP
We are lobbying MPs to put forward amendments to the Agriculture Bill on a range of important animal welfare issues. And the good news is two amendments have now been tabled that could help protect animals during the UK’s free trade negotiations.
One of these amendments is a direct result of evidence Compassion gave in a Parliamentary Committee, and both reflect our key concern that trade deals must not compromise animal welfare.
Please email your MP and ask them to back these changes to the Agriculture Bill.
